We believe that God’s desire for us in Munich is to build a growing church that welcomes cultural and ethnic diversity, a place that is intentionally reaching out to people and drawing them into life in genuine community, a place where believers can introduce their friends, their co-workers and their neighbors to the gospel and to life in Jesus Christ.
We believe that God is calling us to be a significant, growing presence in this city. We believe He wants MICC to grow large enough to be a distinctive focal point for the gospel in this city. He wants us to be more than a small storefront church that exists and happens to hold meetings in English for expats and locals; He wants us to be a place where people from Germany and other nations around the world come and worship and exalt the Lord Jesus together.
We believe that God desires MICC to be a genuine community, a place believers can call home. No matter where you’ve come from, you want a place where you can enjoy close fellowship. We want to be large enough to be a distinctive presence in the community, but also small enough through our small group ministries so that people have a place to connect and be involved. MICC is a place where those who join us can see that their lives matter to other believers.
We believe that God is calling us to be a developing, growing and equipping place. MICC is a training center where the members of this community are trained and equipped to effectively live and reproduce their lives in this community and city, as well as in the other places in the world where God may eventually send them so that His name might be made known.
We desire over the long term have the privilege of glorifying God through Jesus Christ by presenting to Him hundreds, even thousands of disciple-making disciples that have passed through the city of Munich and through the ministries of this church. They will be people that have been blessed, encouraged, equipped and grown and then go on to encourage, bless and invest in others’ lives as well.
Finally, we believe that God is calling us to a reproducing ministry. God wants to grow MICC in terms of our leadership, our strength and our worship, so that we might be instrumental in planting other churches in this city, in Germany, in Europe and elsewhere in the world.
